George ( @multimixer ) made something a long time ago for normal osCommerce which allows people to upload images, read more at http://multimixer.gr/08/03/2012/fileupload-for-oscommerce/ 

I am sure that if you sent a message he would quote you for a Phoenix remake.
Probably as would our Certified Developers.

An addon made 10 years ago is hardly likely to fit into Phoenix is it, considering that Phoenix is 15 months old. 
Hence, the addon would need to be remade.

There is the Options Type addon. It would have to be converted to work with Phoenix but is another possibility.

how can you convert it 

It requires code changes to convert it. The addon changes a relatively large number of core files so it would not be a quick conversion. I have a version for a later oscommerce version than the one for that addon but even it would require quite a few changes to allow it to work correctly with Phoenix. So while the addon will allow you to do what you want, it will take an experienced oscommerce programmer to properly convert it.

is there a way too prompt  them to email the photo  till its done 

You could add a note to the product page, confirmation page or wherever it makes sense, telling the customer to email the image to you.  If you sell things that don't require an image, then you should only show the message for the correct product or word the message to say it is not needed for some items. You can install my Message Box addon that will allow you to add a message to the header. That might be easier than trying to code it. Though you could edit the text for one of the modules to include the message.
